Whats the study type for an error medication research?

Hi, I would like to know what is the type of study for the following research:
- The researcher conducted a descriptive study of medication errors in a hospital over 3 years. The number and characteristics of medication errors were the comparison sample.
- The researcher implemented a medication error mitigation program.
- Then the researcher studied the number and characteristics of medication errors in the 3 years before the implementation of the mitigation program. And these results were compared with the 3-year sample prior to implementation.
What is the type of study for this research?
